One of the greatest modern jazz orchestras, Jazz at Lincoln Center Orchestra, will kick off this year’s jazz sessions at the Odeon of Herodes Atticus. Consisting of major soloists, musician and orchestrators, the orchestra is conducted by trumpeter and composer Wynton Marsalis, one of the most famous and acclaimed jazzmen of the last several decades.

Consistently active for years, both in concerts and in recordings, the orchestra boasts a rich repertoire spanning the entire history of jazz. Artistic director Wynton Marsalis comes from a family of acclaimed musicians, with deep ties into jazz tradition and education. Marsalis himself has been distinguished both as a jazz and as a classical musician, having won Grammy Awards for both of those music categories in the same year.
